So glad to have you join us for the inaugural year of The Bee Balm virtual quilting bee! I am so looking forward to getting to know all of you and seeing the incredible quilts that we can put together.

Feel free to post at any time. We would love to see the blocks you are working on and what is inspiring you now!


  1. thank YOU Tara,
    you are the one who is making this possible.
    I was starting to wander if you ever got my mail. what a nice surprise to see a blog and the bee up and running. the pressure is on.
    looking forward to meeting everybody!

  2. hi, Tara,
    this is a great idea! I love the dedication to the group, and hope I can "measure" up to the skills everyone has. Maybe it's petty-but I love looking at Sarah's quilt on the chair, and will miss it when it goes to school tomorrow:(

  3. Yay us!

    This is my first quilting bee (in person or virtual) so I'm beyond excited LOL.

  4. I was so excited I forgot to ask...would it be possible to do an introduction post? Would love to get to know everyone better.

  5. Hi Tara,
    Just got your package with the pretty fabrics.
    Do you have a theme for us? I know at one point we had talked about that. Do you have dimensions? I guess I'm impatient...
    Look forward to hearing from you.

  6. Tara,

    I received the fabric. It is really pretty and I can't wait to try my hand at making one of the little houses. I don't blame you for picking that pattern, it is so neat!! I might have to make one for myself sometime.
